Day Nine

Peter Collins presents artistic gymnastics and athletics action, as day nine continues in Japan. At Ariake Gymnastics Centre, reigning Olympic champion Max Whitlock will be hoping to repeat his performance from Rio 2016, when he won both the floor and pommel titles. Peerless American Simone Biles can cement her legacy in Tokyo by setting an all-time record for the most Olympic and world medals - she came into the Games needing four more, and may have chances in the vault and uneven bars today. Over at the Olympic Stadium, the men's high jump and women's triple jump champion are decided , before the race to replace Usain Bolt as the 100m sprint king takes centre-stage. US national champion Trayvon Bromell announced himself as a contender this season, while Commonwealth champion Akani Simbine and Rio 2016 bronze medallist Andre de Grasse are among the others to stake a claim in the build-up to these Games. Prior to that final, it promises to be another exhilarating duel between four-time world champion Yulimar Rojas and reigning Olympic gold medallist Caterine Ibargue in the triple jump
